Edition of 30
Tue Greenfort's interdisciplinary practice deals with the overlap of public and private realms, natural and cultural history. This new edition was produced on the occasion of the artist's exhibition Garbage Bay at SculptureCenter in 2013. The exhibition featured a new body of work that considers art's role in reaffirming and dismantling assumptions about nature and the environment. Through extensive research, discussions with experts, artists, and environmentalists, the exhibition and artwork presented examine the site of Jamaica Bay, a marshland that spans the outer boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens in New York City. Greenfort's exhibition and the discussions hosted around it seeks to uncover parallels and contextualize relationships between art, ecology, and politics, using the actualities of the specific site of Jamaica Bay, as well as its broader implications.
Tue Greenfort lives and works in Berlin. As a participant in dOCUMENTA(13) in Kassel, Greenfort co-curated an archive on multi-species co-evolution, The Worldly House. He has had extensive solo presentations at Berlinische Galerie; South London Gallery; Kunstverein Braunschweig and Secession, Vienna. Greenfort has participated in numerous international exhibitions at institutions including Kunstverein Hannover; Royal Academy of Arts, London; Bonniers Konsthall, Stockholm; the Fondazione Morra Greco, Naples; Skulptur Projekte Münster and Witte de With, Rotterdam.
